Madhavi Chandra, Chief Product Officer, shares development details on Informer 5.8!
Get ready for a revolution in data-driven design! The upcoming release of Informer 5.8 brings an array of features that will empower users to create customized outputs while optimizing their workflows. At the heart of this release are two powerful new features: Templates and Letterhead.
Templates: Unrivaled Design Control & Efficiency
Informer 5.8 includes the game-changing Templates feature, designed to provide users with total control over their custom outputs. With Templates, you can create pixel-perfect layouts by utilizing HTML and server-side rendering. You can either write the HTML code directly or use the WYSIWYG rich editor, a friendly layer on top of the Templates engine that does not require knowledge of HTML. Accept runtime inputs, run queries, access datasets, and execute scripts to create the exact design you envision.
Our Templates engine allows you to easily preview your creations before exporting them as HTML or PDFs, and seamlessly use them in your business workflows. For example, you can create your Template and then use Job Actions to send emails with your Template. By leveraging the various Job Actions, you can streamline your processes and save valuable time. With Informer 5.8’s Templates, you can design with precision, harness the power of your data, and optimize your business workflows seamlessly.
Letterhead: Amplify Brand Identity
The upcoming release of Informer 5.8 also brings the versatile Letterhead feature, enabling you to elevate your PDF exports across the platform. With Letterhead, you can establish a unique brand identity by customizing layout options, headers, footers, and watermarks. Apply Letterhead to all types of exports, including Datasets, Ad Hoc Queries, and even Templates. Whether you use Letterhead to protect your internal documents by watermarking them “Confidential” or tailor documents to specific styles, Informer allows you to present effective documents that reflect your different needs. The outcome is professional, polished documents.
Dark Mode on External Links: Enhanced User Experience
Experience the comfort of dark mode even more with the upcoming Informer 5.8. Users can view external links in dark mode, providing a more comfortable browsing experience. Toggle between light and dark themes to suit individual preferences and enjoy a more visually appealing interface! While for many this is an elevated UX experience, for some of our customers this is a mission critical need based on how and when they use Informer.
The release of Informer 5.8 promises to transform the way users interact with data and design. With the powerful combination of Templates and Letterhead, you can customize outputs, optimize workflows, and create effective, branded documents that elevate your business. Stay tuned for the official release date and be among the first to experience the creative possibilities unleashed by Informer 5.8!
